There are a few problems that could cause this. The first thing that comes to mind is a loose connection or a bad cable. Try replacing the cable. If that doesn't do it, press and hold the power button on your PS3 until you hear it beep a couple of times. Let go, then follow the step-by-step instructions on your TV.

I have a madcatz call of duty black ops controll, it charges when i connect it but wont connect to my ps3? help me!


You need to sync your controller with the ps3, put the USB dongle into one of the available slots on the ps3 - exactly where you would normally connect a wired controller on the front. Now switch on your ps3, the dongle will connect, now put your USB cable into the black ops controller and switch on - your 4 lights should be flashing on the controller. Now press connect on the USB dongle, your controller should now sync to the ps3 and hopefully will show as controller No 1. Remove the USB cable and play wireless.

I can only think of one thing that may be causing this- please try disconnecting your PS3 from the internet by unplugging it. Then turn on PS 3 and try to play the game. If I have helped you, please rate my info 4 thumbs up so I may get paid. :)

My Ps3 Keeps saying No dwonload is applicable when i try to update call of duty black ops


If you can play black ops, then I wouldn't worry about it. If you need to download something to play the game then the system should have you do it through the system update.

It turned off in the middle of COD Black Ops & now nothing happens. There is no lights or anthing when I try to turn it on


NO lights? must be a power issue. But you were playing black ops when this happened? interesting. There have been reports of Black Ops causing problems on PS3. Many believe that the game makes the processors work too hard, causing premature failure.

Hi, I got a so called "whitescreen" while playing CoD Black Ops.. Shut off the console and now 48h later, the ps3 won't find the black ops disc when trying to read the game.. Do you now what...


If the problem is only with the Black Ops game it could mean that the the game paly data is corrupt. Start by deleting the saved game data and the file data for the Black Ops game and if that doesn't work try doing a system restore. NOTE: A system restore will delete all other game data. I recommend backing up your system onto a usb flash drive.

One of the biggest causes of the blinking red light problem is placing the console with the fan vents sitting against the floor or up against a wall where air cannot flow freely in and out of the console.and to fix PS3 red light blinking is to unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in.
